I am interested to see if there will be an effort to compete against Norwegian Air low fares on this same Oakland OAK-LGW London route. British Airways flying from San Francisco SFO, San Jose SJC and Oakland OAK is a big commitment to the San Francisco Bay Area airports. Peak summer season fares in the $600s from California to London are an exciting development for 2017 travel.

There have been British Airways and Oneworld Alliance deals for Europe from several USA airports today. Here are a couple of posts from earlier today.
